Remember that stampede to Barack Obama last year? Thurbert Baker didn’t join it. This from Associated Press:
Attorney General Thurbert Baker is getting some high-profile help in his bid to become Georgia’s first black governor.
Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fund-raiser for Baker Dec. 7 in New York.
Baker praised Clinton for building a strong economy, saying he would do the same in Georgia if elected to replace Republican Sonny Perdue.
In 2007, Baker endorsed then-Sen. Hillary Clinton’s bid for president, becoming one of her most prominent backers in Georgia. Barack Obama went on to win Georgia’s Democratic primary and the White House.
Since leaving office, Bill Clinton has remained one of the Democratic Party’s most sought-after fundraisers.
